Still inspired by creamy latte

As this week's challenge at Anyone for Anya is one of my absolute favorites to work with, what to do but to let creativity flow - LOL!

The background for this card was found among my scraps. It has a metallic sheen to it and at a close look some linen texture, think cotton sheets. The colour combo is to die for, but I actually used the other side for Christmas cards (four years ago?! - you can imagine the size of my pile of scraps!), it has a vivid pattern i bronze tone on white.

As the paper itself gives the card some shimmer, I did not find the need of LSG's on the flowers. Thus this card came together pretty fast - armed with a glue gun and an ATG:)
The flowers are from I am roses and kawaii flexible mold roses.

Cherry blossom, mix pack of browns, S3 - 827
Rose buds, ivory, T1 - 147
Brown flower, S10 - 40

The image is from the greeting farm, as always - love TGF. The majority of my stamps are from TGF, but that's about to change. I recently won some stamps from C.C design and as I about to design for the rubber buggy who carries Magnolia, Sarah Kay, Mo Manning and Bildmalarna you will soon see some other stamped images - so bare with me:) 

I coloured cheeky rockability with:
Face - Ivory, E50 and blush
Hair - E51, E53 and cinnamon
Dress - E50 and soft green
Shoes - Satin

The TGF-FFF is about lace and I had some scrap pieces from my stash in a brown and a green tone. The sentiment is from complimentary greetings set from MFT and are not our BBF one of the heroes in our lifes? I believe so, I am lucky to have such a person, therefore I will cross my fingers and hope this card qualifies for Simon say stamp vintage challenge about heros. The sentiment is stamped on a die cut set from MFT too. The image and die cut are pop up with foam tape, but I left her little leg out and it does add more dimension and depth to the card.

I also entered this card in:
Whimsy stamps - anything goes
